Time & Purpose

November 30th… thirty days have September, April, June and November; all the rest have thirty one except for February, which has twenty eight… Today is the final day of November, the eleventh month of the year. Which means we’re only another thirty days or so from kicking off 2023. Time is an interesting thing. And

Being Seen

Love songs. Romantic comedies. Dramas. Theatrical shows. Fables and fairytales. If done well, they grab our attention, and don’t let go. We want to see how they play out.

If you are on this Zoom call today, there is something I know about you — you’ve got talent. If you’re a member, you were chosen for your seat. And since there was only one, it wasn’t handed over without scrutiny. You made it here, and you’ve been here. If you’re a guest, it’s true

Your Pit Crew & the Power of Supportive Relationships

I believe that when we first walk through the doors — be them physical or virtual — and evaluate whether or not Elevate is “for us,” there are certain things we all wonder about. Will I get referrals? Will I close business? Maybe we consider if we’ll learn something, or grow in other ways. But

Nuts and Bolts

There are two main aspects to every single moment that we all live. There’s doing — the action; and being — the… well, being. How we are oriented to our lives. Leadership requires both. As a Coach, I spend a lot of time with clients focusing on the being. Because no matter how amazing your
